Alarm Removal

Hi folks.

I recently picked up a 2007 T100 Bonneville which came fitted with a Datatool S4 alarm. I don't want the alarm, I went to start up my bike this morning and found it had drained the battery *not happy*, also I keep my bike in a lock up five minutes from my house so even if it was going off i'm not going to hear it. 

Anyway I took the seat off and found a white plug (see picture) coming from the alarm which plugs into the bike, if i undo this is that the alarm removed?

Thanks in advance :tongue:

I had a

similar problem with my Bandit, it turned out to be a loose earth connection on the battery itself, now I can leave it for weeks and it will still start....

smidget,  most of what you say is correct,but modern alarms only draw half a milliamp, that is not enough to drain a healthy battery very quickly.

Reading through the links in Jaffas post it looks like it might be difficult getting a plug off Triumph unless you give the bike to them and they do it! I'll phone anyway see whats what. I like the solar panel idea will look into it.

The two eyelet terminals; one is the neg to the battery and the other is the neg to to optimate, fitted by the previous owner.

I was looking through the Datatool manual today and there is a winter mode you can select which operates the alarm at a lower voltage, i will use this in the mean time while i figure out what i am going to do.

Thanks for the help guys :smile

Update

Well I don't like leaving these thing at a loose end, so in case this helps anyone else out in the future here's what I done. 


I learned to live with the alarm and all was going well until I got pissed off again, setting it self off while filling up and the slightest breeze drove the thing to start screaming like a banshee. So I asked the same question on the RAT forum and was given a part number for a blanking plug.

I emailed Triumph Edinburgh and they had one in stock for £11.89. Excellent. So I popped along last weekend and picked one up for £3.65 (confused me too, but I'm not complaining). I don't know if this will fit all Datatool alarms or just ones fitted to Triumph's. I was talking to the guy about them being hard to get a hold of etc and he'd never heard about this but they've got plenty in stock. Fitted it today and works like a dream. :smile
